I’m looking to make some of my own molds for casting buckshot and shotgun slugs from lead. Generally these molds are made from brass or aluminum (either of which is acceptable to me) however I’m curious if anyone here has ever used the Nomad 883 Pro to do this or for similar mold-making efforts?
On a somewhat-unrelated note, can anyone walk me through how the the 883 Pro is configured to know the dimensions of the stock placed on it? I have read all the tutorials I could find, and while most mention zeroing the Z position as well as the tool height measurement, I haven’t seen any yet that mention how you tell the machine the dimensions of the work surface in terms of X and Y.
I’m chomping at the bit to buy my 883 Pro and get started but want to make sure I know everything I need to before taking the plunge on it.
Any help/advice/experiences would be appreciated.
